Sarah Picon
Table Verte - Printemps

2016

About

Sarah Picon refers to her artistic practice as a dual search for revealing abstract shapes in form, color and texture, along with recognizable objects – a chair or a bowl of fruit. When she begins a painting she will allow images seen, photographed or previously drawn to flood her senses. Through a subconscious process of elimination of imagery, rather than a building up, and using both painting and drawing techniques, the essence of a painting reveals itself. In her still lifes Picon refers to Cezanne, with bowls of fruit precariously sitting on tilted tables, and early Picasso with the softly fragmented figures and skewed, expressive facial features. The backgrounds are created with broad washes of color marked by intersecting plains, indicating a room, walls, perhaps a colorful wallpaper. With each painting, Picon invites us into a luscious interior, at once contemporary and nostalgic, and beckons us to join the woman at the table reading, sipping tea or gazing out of the window at a hilly landscape beyond.
